Getting to grips with Kenyan culture

When travelling I appreciate the differences. I like to observe, participate and learn about different modes of living. There are so many different ways of doing things and I believe that travelling is a wonderful way to expands ones horizon and to questions ones own habit. Cultural diversity is precious and enriching. For example, women and men carrying bags in their heads, the Kenyan approach to time, respect for the elders and especially the mother, and the open way of reaching out  to one another. I feel like in the last week or so, I am finally getting to grips with the Kenyan game. I am getting an idea of the unspoken social rules going around. I still have so much to learn. But the flavour of Kenyan culture that I have tasted so far, including the delicious fruits makes me want to come back to gain a deeper understanding of Kenya. With the connection I have made through the CM4K expereience, I hope that I will be able return here to pursue my learning out here, maybe not academically but personal growth and development. I am so happy that I am part of CM4K.
